What do you need to start Quilting?

Quilting can seem very daunting when you first start researching about it. However, there are only really 4 steps you have to follow to start! After that, you can start playing and figure out which extra tools and patterns are for you. 

1. Assemble your quilting tools

Quilting can be done with a basic sewing kit and with a €10.000 + sewing machine and everything in between. In this video, I show you the 9 basic tools you need to quilt.

2. Prepare your fabrics

Quilting is storytelling. Textiles hold memories. This combination creates the magic of quilting! That’s why we are going to quilt with old clothes and saved textiles! Bonus:  This is also good for the environment because it extends the life of textiles. The video shows how I prepare saved textiles before quilting.

3. Get inspiration to make

So what are the possibilities of quilting? In this video, I show you some projects you could make with quilting techniques.

4. Start small

Quilting can be picked up and put down very easily, especially done by hand. It can be done for 5 minutes at a time and 5 hours. You’ll see that if you quilt 30 minutes a day you’ll have amazing results. Check this video and playlist for a mini memory quilt tutorial. It’s a great place to start!
